80-85 days. This heirloom from the Ukraine was collected in 1993 by Seed Savers Exchange. Very popular on Island of Krim in the Black Sea. Melons ripen to a yellowish-gold and the white flesh has a very high sugar content, a favorite among heirloom gardeners and growers alike. Ripens early, even in Russia.

Review:

I'm very satisfied with this melon, even though I haven't tasted it fully ripe yet. I picked one today, I'm estimating a couple weeks early, just out of sheer curiosity. I was pleasantly surprised to see almost mature seeds and a taste so good my young boys and I couldn't leave alone. It looks similar to a honeydew inside with a similar mild taste, but very sweet and delicious even not fully ripe. How much more wonderful will they be when they are ripe, I can hardly wait to find out. I've got at least 20 melons probably more. They're growing like crazy. Here in the Seattle area, we have had a hot dry spring and summer so far and I'm sure that has helped. I also started these indoors back in mid spring, then they went to my mini greenhouse, then transplanted to the garden in May.

Review:

I was sooo excited about this melon. My Lithuanian ancestors were collective farmers under communist USSR. I planted this as an homage to them. It did not grow. It barely flowered. It faltered. It is growing in my curcurbit bed and on one side patty pans are straining under the weight of fruit and on the other is growing the hubbard my daughter will enter in the 4H fair despite the ramptant squash bugs we need to squash every day. But the melons. So sadly not doing a darn thing :(

Review:

Grew these in large pots in Western Washingon last year. All of the seeds I planted sprouted. This area is known for it's rain but the last few summers have been *very* dry. The melons grew well but due to limited space (because they were in pots) and inconsistent watering, the melons only grew to about baseball size. I think they are supposed to be bigger. Still, despite the size, they were freaking delicious - like a sweeter, crisper honeydew - and they smelled amazing. Also, they continued to grow and try to produce melons until mid fall, so if you take proper care of them, you might get a very good harvest. I intend to take better care of them this year and I'm looking forward to seeing the results. Highly, highly recommended!

Review:

Last year was a terrible melon year for us due to the weather but the Collective Farm Woman thrived and produced loads of wonderful melons. This is the only melon we like well enough to save the seed and we grow many varieties.

Review:

I was a bit hesitant to purchase the seeds - the description in the catalog wasn't as exciting and adoring as other melons. So glad I purchased this one though - the best melon I have ever grown. I'm growing 5 types of melons this year and so far, this is the best (have yet to pick 3 species so can't say that is my final answer). Sweet and crispy - I only planted 1 hill with these (2 plants) and got 4 melons. So next year I'm definitely planting more. All of my melons were a bit late this year, but this one was the first that I picked. Definitely recommend.
